The aerospace industry has a larger international footprint than almost any other sector. Ranging from individual connectors to the completed aircraft, the supply chain often spans the entire globe. In times of ever-closer collaboration and ever-tighter deadlines, the level of digitalization should actually be extensive. Actuall.

Our recently published study presents a somewhat different picture. Read more

Supply Chain Performance Management integrates track and trace data – thus ensuring seamless logistics processes

Track and trace, that is, determining the location of shipments, is definitely nothing new. Yet everyone still seems to be talking about it. How come?

Easy: We know that networked production as well as “smart factories” require reliable information on the delivery status of components. But this also translates to delivery logistics, where it’s important to know, for instance, where a spare part is located and whether it will reach its final destination on time or whether the parts will arrive at the assembly plant (CKD) as scheduled.

Sure, logistics service providers are already able to provide plenty of data regarding the location of a shipment – granted, not always in real-time, but still. Yet, how do we connect our systems with those of the logistics service providers? What do we do with the data? How can parts and status notifications be linked to each other without requiring an inordinate amount of effort and time from service providers and suppliers? How can we avoid having to enter data for different customers into individual custom portals? And how can all this data be analyzed effectively? Questions abound. Read more
